Every child deserves a great education, but many students struggle to succeed in public and charter school environments where they may not receive the amount of individualized attention they need to realize their full potential. Unfortunately, many families fail to consider the possibility of private school as an alternative option because they fear it will be too expensive, but Cortelyou Academy, located at 2739 Bedford Avenue and 386 Marlborough Road, is very much in reach, with affordable tuition and scholarship opportunities.
As a well-established K-5 school with a proven track record of excellence, which has maintained a strong reputation in the community for almost 40 years, Cortelyou Academy offers families the opportunity to give their child a competitive edge. Small classes of 16 to 18 students led by master teachers, who follow a rigorous, tech-enriched curriculum, prepare students to attend prestigious universities and obtain successful careers.
Cortelyou Academy consistently reports robust NYS standardized testing proficiency levels with 86% proficiency in Math and ELA and can boast of a whopping 99% graduation rate. Students who graduate from the Academy go on to attend top intermediate and secondary schools like Poly Prep Country Day School, Berkeley Carroll, Medgar Evers College Preparatory School and colleges like Ohio State University and Seton Hall.
Even more important though, Cortelyou Academy nurtures the whole student and provides kids with a safe, diverse, inclusive and structured environment, in which they may thrive. They offer pre-school, before- and after-school, summer care and freshly prepared meals informed by the expertise of a nutritionist. Students are given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities to help identify their gifts and interests and become more traveled and well-rounded scholars through the benefit of domestic and international family excursions. They gain foreign language skills, develop strong STEM foundations and gain confidence through performing arts programs. In essence, Cortelyou Academy students are given the tools and support they need to become the very best versions of themselves.
